IE 7 auto upgrade

December 21, 2006

Wow, Microsoft is being quite aggressive on the IE7 auto upgrading.

IE7 auto upgrade on Windows 2003 Server R2

That’s an automatic update prompt on Windows Server 2003 R2. I wouldn’t think they’d push IE7 onto servers so soon, but I guess they’re really looking to make IE7 ubuquitous ASAP.

Now if only they did the same thing for the .NET framework, maybe we’d be able to take advantage of the .NET 2.0 and 3.0 libraries!

    Too bad IE7 has a very annoying bug šŸ˜¦

    When you want to log in the proxy where auth. is required, no window asking your credentials pops up… I had to downgrade to IE6 because of this since there is no other place in the system to set up the proxy…

    And they push it now automatically to all machines… *sigh*

    Interesting. It’s been pushed neither to my home or work XP machines.

    I guess I’ll accept the upgrade when it’s offered. I use Firefox whenever possible, but there are the occasional apps which insist upon hooking into IE [blech!].

    Your post is quite interesting and useful. I have bookmarked it for later use to see what other great articles you post!
